    Looking good. But why the line? Is it in 2 parts?

    PS: I've sent you an email regarding the item for sale. :icon_thumright:

    ill right mate, ive got some bubble wrap i can use, picking my s3 rear up tonight, ill put it on the car and sort packing this up in the morning for you,

    also my front S3 bumper has just arrived, DIRTY :( also alittle worn too which didnt expect, going to need painting soon and it has quite a few black light scratches on the front.

    also yes ended up in 2 parts as the shape is long but the width isnt a problem, planning on too but some sort of badge on the pillars anyway so think it wont look as bad,

    Nice plates, shame they are not the legal ones. I got fed up being pulled for mine so resorted to std plates.

    ill see how things go, usually get them from dubmeister, had a picture of the legal ones side by side with the show ones, only real different was were they were made, ie. postcode or whatever on them, could always add alittle somthing on them ;)

    All looking good mate, keep us updated. Did you have much hass getting that JVC in there? I have been trying to get mine sorted for a while but last time I tried it turned out I have to figure out if my speakers are half amplified or full amplified to get the right cables. You still got the grill? How much would you be looking for that

    Fitted the exhaust the other day, just need a bracket making for it to sit slightly alittle more up, will get pics when done, was scouring ebay other night a company had aero wipers on starting at 0.1p and £8 postage, won them for that ;), heres pictures, excellent quality and work really really well, a million times better than standard

    Aero wipers rule dude! And that is a bargain, mine cost a little more at £12. Anyway, I digress, Mods looking really good.

    Loving the wheels, I'm going to paint my RS8 reps black sooner or later - think it will really work well with the yellow of the car, and then paint everything else thats silver black as well, such as the exhaust tips and the front mount...

    Thought about a boot spoiler? One that just sits about the back windscreen?
